Training: Alcohol and Sexual Assault Issues

All new students are expected to complete the AlcoholEdu and Haven for College Students programs, created by EverFi.

About These Programs

New students, including transfer students, are required to complete both AlcoholEdu and Haven.

AlcoholEdu

AlcoholEdu uses science-based research and evidence-based interactive strategies, including personalized feedback, to educate students about alcohol and its effects.

Haven

Haven uses a non-opinionated tone and style to provide important prevention skills and strategies to all students around issues associated with sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.

Getting Started

To complete the program, you will need internet access and audio capabilities. If you do not have ready access to a computer, you may use a computer at a local library, copy center, or community center.
  1. Click Sign In and use your Colgate network credentials (same as the Portal).
  2. Complete the confidential pre-survey and start the course.
  3. Look for the AlcoholEdu and Haven boxes and click Get Started. These are two courses and you must complete both.

Course Completion

  • Part One takes about 2–2.5 hours to complete, ending with an exam and survey. You have the option to complete the course in multiple sittings. You must earn a grade of 70 percent or higher to pass the AlcoholEdu course; Haven does not have a required score to pass.
  • You will be notified by e-mail when it is time to complete Part Two which will take 20–30 minutes to complete.
  • You must complete Part Two to officially finish the program.

Deadlines

  • Trainings will be made available to new students on January 2.
  • Part I of both AlcoholEdu and Haven trainings must be completed by January 22.
  • You will be e-mailed details for Part II of the trainings 45 days after completing Part 1.

As a university we are committed to fostering a healthy and safe environment that supports our educational mission and that is free from exploitation and intimidation.
  • We want to ensure that you have an understanding of the behaviors that fall under the umbrella of sexual misconduct.
  • We want to ensure that you have an understanding of the risks associated with alcohol and drug use.
  • We want to ensure that you are knowledgeable of resources available for additional education and support.

More Information

Support for students with disabilities
Colgate will make accommodations for students who are unable to complete the course in its current form due to a disability. Please contact Lynn Waldman, Director of Academic Support and Disability Services, at lwaldman@colgate.edu.
Privacy
The course includes surveys to personalize your experience and measure alcohol-related attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as a whole, and will never see individual student responses. Administrators will have access to student test scores, but like the surveys, will not have access to individual responses.
